“How would it seem to you to see swans swimming in the waters of the Aegean…?”
Project Auditorem Andros was inspired by the hillsides of Andros island.
It consists of two cubic volumes of unadorned concrete: the reception area and the performance space.
The visitor initially contemplates the project as a concrete frame of the horizon, without seeing or sensing the auditorium.
A characteristic of the project will be the huge window-pane at the back of the stage, opening to the Aegean Sea.
On either side of the theatre, two bare terraces have been designed, without visual contact with each other. One is aimed for the visitors and the other one for the artists.
Backstage rooms and the spaces for actors/ musicians/ speakers lie on the level beneath the stage, as well as beneath the main seating area. The concrete structure at the windows temporarily deprives them of the open sea, aiming to liberate them once upon the stage.
